PHOTOS: The Seas with Nemo and Friends Gets a Wave of Updates at EPCOT

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The Seas with Nemo and Friends has had several updates as part of the overall EPCOT renovation and refresh. Come along with us and check them out!

To help navigate all the temporary construction walls and moveable rolling hedges, a new column sign has been placed outside. The sign points the way to The Seas with Nemo and Friends and to Coral Reef Restaurant.

Further along the path, there is another sign pointing to the entrance of Coral Reef Restaurant.

The gift shop has new carpeting in this gray-brown print with squiggles that resemble seaweed and spots that look like bubbles and sea foam.

An up-close shot of the seaweed carpet. This carpet can be seen in other locations in the building.

The second type of carpet is a solid dark teal. This carpet can also be seen throughout the building.

The third carpet pattern is a sort of uneven rendered stripe in a gray, blue, and brown.

In the middle of the building at a junction between all the main areas there is a new large, illuminated directional sign. This sign points guests to the correct locations to see all their favorite sea animals.

It even features the original EPCOT logo for The Living Seas!

Upstairs in the aquarium viewing areas, new frames have been added to the insides of the windows to give a nice, finished submarine look.

These orange and white frames line each window and were placed by divers! (Guess those underwater welding classes came in handy after all.)

The dark gray splatters on the light gray carpet looks like stains instead of a purposeful design


I love the starfish that look like a toasted marshmallow! Can’t remember their name. I didn’t know starfish like that existed!


I can spends hours here! I love to sit on the window ledge and watch the manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles. This is one of my favorite places in Epcot to visit.
